Hello Moni and List,
If the article is referring to unclassified material,which would make sense,
thereby allowing material never to reach the scientific community, the point
is well taken.
On ther other hand, without this kind of transport, where would this
material abide?
In the desert because the nomads would have no market?
With the Moroccon dealers who'd sell it to the highest bidder?
Certainly not to the scietific community whose ill funded programs would
never allow therm to purchase.
If by some chance the scientists could get hold of it, the backup of
classification would be quintrupled and stuff would sit forever in drawers
somewhere unappreciated and just as "lost" to this and subsequent
So the general public has access to these treasures and at least 600 members
of this list get to study and discuss and compare and make informed though
informal judgements about them.
